Just in time for [insert any and all reasons to drink champagne here]!!

Of course, you'd have to travel to Britain to use it! The department store, Selfridge's, plans to allow customers to ‘drink and buy’ from a real life vending machine as they pick up their festive gifts.

Yup! That's right! Screw getting a Snickers bar or that bag of M&Ms! Popping a bubbly at your shopping convenience is where it's at!

Moet & Chandon is offering selections of each of the bottles that are special compared to their bigger, regular brothers — that's because they're encrusted with Swarvoski jewels!

The 200ml bottles can be bought for

Georgetown Getting Cupcake ATM!

Filed under: Silly!Business BlitzFoodScience!

Okay, so is it REALLY that more convenient to get a cupcake out of a machine instead of going into the bakery??

Yep! Especially at, say, 2am!

Georgetown is getting a Sprinkles Cupcake ATM — one that runs 24 hours a day!

Candace Nelson was pregnant when the idea for cupcake vending machines hit her:

“All I wanted at the time was cupcakes, but nothing was open at that hour. I thought ‘I own a cupcake shop and I can’t even get my hands on one. Just think of all of those pregnant women out there who would love a cupcake vending machine.’”

We're not sure how you can own a cupcake shop and still want to eat cupcakes ever again, regardless of being preggers!

Even more ridiculous is the fact that the machines cost $100,000 a piece, and there are plans for 9 cities to get them.

That means they have to sell 25,000 cupcakes before they're profitable.

So far, the Beverly Hills machine (the O.G. machine) dispenses some 1,000 cupcakes per day.

We get the feeling that the novelty of it will wear off, though.
